Medication management is a review of all medications prescribed by all prescribers providing care to you, and includes traditional prescriptions, any over-the-counter, herbal, supplements, and/or remedies the patient may be taking to identify and address medication problems. We address problems which may include medications not being used correctly, duplication of medications, unnecessary medications, effectiveness of the medication and the need for medication(s) for an untreated or poorly managed condition.
It is an in-depth, medication-related education, consultation, and time for advice provided to you, family and/or caregivers to help assure proper use of medications. It is time for collaboration with you, and other health care providers to develop and achieve optimal goals of medication therapy. During this appointment time, your provider may provide supportive counseling based upon your needs at that time.
